The other day, on my daily blog/forum browsing, I was reading NoriYaro when I noticed Alexi mentioned a bike project that I had read about years ago. That bike was the Blade Rod, a custom 1998 Honda CBR900RR built by Mark Boxer, one of the people behind the new drift & stunt DVD Phat Sliggity.
I love this style of custom motorcycle. I think they possess character and charisma far beyond that of Japanese sports bikes or billion-dollar choppers. If anyone knows of any cool build threads for bikes like this, please let me know. This particular example was found on the Jockey Journal. I really need to read up on them a bit more to learn about the different styles and categories, maybe then I can write up a decent description of the next build as opposed to this vague & dismal effort!
The Honda Ruckus scene has absolutely exploded in America over the past few years, and it seems to go hand-in-hand with the late model JDM scene. Often I browse through pictures of US-based car meets and there’s always a Ruckus or two (or ten!) hanging around, sitting nice and low with a fat back tyre extended rearward on a custom frame. Some people may think its crazy to lust after a chopped, lengthened and modded scooter, but I love these things.
Project Raucous takes it to a whole new level, check out the fabrication in this build.
